I think that I know enough C++ to advance beyond the point of "Hello World" So how do I program windows using C++ if I DON''T want to use Visual C++? Any suggestions how to start? (i.e. "Hello world" windows style? ) "Damnation! No donation? no salvation!" -"Jesus Saves", GTA2

Hi, I think I have one.

I am an Brazilian guy and I think I can help you...

Why you don''''t start making some programs simple like a calculator to improve you learning???

Start with any C++ compiler, but I preffer the Free Borland C++ Compiler 5.5.1

You can download at:

www.borland.com/bcppbuilder/freecompiler

A great reference guide for this is the lines above....

---------------------------- A FILE IN .cPP

#define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN // Exclude rarely-used stuff from Windows headers

#include "windows.h"

int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,
HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
LPSTR lpCmdLine,
int nCmdShow)
{

MessageBox( NULL, "This is a messagebox", "My Caption", MB_OK );

return 0;
}

Go to your local book store or Amazon.com and order the following book.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/157231995X/qid=1005845750/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_11_1/107-7811418-2172502

You will find everything you need to develop windows applications.

I used this book to learn how to program windows 3 a million years ago.
